THE DRILL SERGEANT: Dreadnought Resources (ASX: DRE) has commenced a 12 hole RC drill program at the company’s Illaara gold-VMS project outside Kalgoorlie in Western Australia.
Dreadnought Resources’ drilling will commence with six holes spread across the Rodney, Warspite, Bismarck and Reindler’s VMS targets, all of which have been identified to contain outcropping gossans and conductive EM plates.
Drilling will then entail six holes undertaken at Metzke’s Find to infill 250m of strike beneath the deepest workings associated with a bend in the mineralised structure where previous drilling intersected encouraging gold hits.
“Six EM plates with coincident outcropping gossans will be drilled along with holes beneath the deepest workings and coincident structural bend at the Metzke’s Find,” Dreadnought Resources managing director Dean Tuck said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.
“We have barely scratched the surface at Illaara with over 100 kilometres of prospective VMS horizon and numerous gold corridors at Central Illaara, Metzke’s and Lawrence’s.”
Once the above-mentioned drilling is complete, Dreadnought will undertake additional target definition work within the Illaara Central Corridor, Metzke’s Corridor, Eastern and Western VMS Horizons and at Rocky Dam followed by additional RC drilling in July/August 2020.
